Famous for his whispery vocals, Elliott Smith compared his songs to stories or dreams, not purely confessional pieces that people could relate to.
While he often touched upon his alcoholism and depression in his songs, there's a theory that states that all his songs are about alcohol or heroin. He died in 2003 form two stab wounds in the chest. 
 
Listen to “Between The Bars” below : 
 
 
Gregory Alan Isakov

Born in Johannesburg and raised in Philadelphia, Gregory Alan Isakov has been playing professionally since he was 16. His music features heavily in commercials and television shows in the US. His last album, The Weatherman, was recorded mostly in solitude outside a small town in Colorado over the course of a year and a half.

Dallas Green had already recorded demos of songs that would feature on his debut solo album before he started post-hardcore band Alexisonfire, and continued to release material under the moniker City & Colour while playing and touring with the band. They disbanded in 2011 when Green decided to concentrate more on City & Colour. 
His fifth album, If I Should Go Before You, will come out next month.
